another summer for the city ,
and on the thirty- three bus downtown,
you said “I’m getting higher than you “
so I took the subway to your suburb
saw your mother in an all white gown,
she said “I’m getting high how bout you?”
so long sleep,
its been real deep, but
with all these sheep on my cloud,
I keep on losing count.
see me riding all around town?
an angry boy is a hungry boy.
no one’s around.
a hungry boy is an angry boy
bomb threat on the train,
and there's a man on a ledge in Bed Stuy,
who said, “ I’m getting higher than you!”
nowadays I’m feeling just like him,
ready to blow up or ready to die
so I’m getting high, how bout you?
Jesus Christ, I was stoned last night,
they had me up on a cross,
I woke up feeling lost.
see me riding ?
and there's no one around in my sight
for miles and miles
just an empty bottle of booze
with no text inside
to tell the folks I'm
